After 100000km my bike breaks down in a rural village in India. The nearest big city 10 hours away. Fortunate enough, I take a ride towards an ancient Hindu temple and take a walk through the temple complex. After returning to the bike and just before getting on it, the oil seal pops out of the housing of the final drive and starts draining off oil. Had it happened while riding, I probably would have needed a whole new final drive. However bearing cage was damaged and I'm in a dilemma. It's in the middle of nowhere to get any help. Well, you can do anything if you gotta a clever pair of hands. I take the final drive apart and improvise and ride further 5000km until Sri Lanka where I got the new parts sent to from Germany.
